I was asked yesterday if I watched the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend. I’m boycotting the event for at least another ten years or so.
Here are some remains of the day.
* Greg Sargent notes House Republicans openly admitting “more deportations” is what they mean when they talk about “enforcement first.”
* TNR’s Jonathan Cohn discusses latest Gallup findings on steadily dropping uninsured rate.
* Slate’s Dave Weigel reports Tea Party getting traction with complaints about Thad Cochran’s shadowy recent Mississippi residence.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein argues Benghazi! won’t have any effect on 2016 either in the primaries or the general election.
* At College Guide, Liz Willen reports that in this year of big anniversaries issues of race and legacy of segregation beginning to eclipse “tech-ed” innovations at education conferences.
And in non-political news:
* All hail the biggest achievers, first-born daughters.
That’s it for Monday. Before you go out to a bar and drink margaritas to the sound of “La Bamba,” here’s a “Corrido de Pancho Villa” by Ampara Ochoa.
